With the collaboration of many different partners, EGWA carry out European projects. The common objective is to promote and going further in the promotion and the acknowledging of the contribution of these infrastructures to the development and diversification of regional and local economies and for the soft mobility.
Current and recent projects:
Currently EGWA coordinates the Greenways Outdoor project. The objective is the creation and transnational promotion of an outdoor tourism product linked to European greenways, and the capacity building of SMEs located in their vicinity so that they can tailor their services to the demands of customers and so become more competitive.
Previously EGWA coordinated the Greenways4tour project to promote sustainable tourism through the greenway network. In the framework of the European program Intelligent Energy, EGWA participated in the Naviki project in order to promote cycling on greenways. With its participation in the Greenways Product project, EGWA promoted the creation of the European greenways tourism product.
There are thousands of kilometres of greenways in Europe with a great potential for development, and they are a very useful tool for the development of tourism in rural areas.
EGWA launched two European projects in the framework of the INTERREG program: REVER AMNO (Aire Métropolitaine Nord-Ouest, 1999- 2001) and REVER MED (Méditerranée Occidentale, 2002-2004), aimed at the creation of a transnational, traffic-free European Greenways Network (REseau Vert EuRopéen, REVER).
